a poem is like a

a poem is like a photograph made out of words
stitched together with bits of old string.
and each word is so truly and wholly connected
to its sisters and brothers
that together
they burrow deep into the darkest
most quietly secret corners of the soul,
further than a camera sees, further
than an eye or an ear or a voice,
and wake the heart from a
long ago forgotten dream
